Cicada pattern

Here is a typically used cicada pattern used in NZ to either use as a searching pattern or to support a heavy nymph. Cicadas in NZ are about half the size, or smaller, of the ones that I have seen in PA.

This fly was tied on a size 7 streamer hook, deers hair body and wing casing (I would use green or black but do not have any right now), ribbon from a present for the wings and there meant to be mononylon eyes but I forgot about them until the end as I was having issues with spinning for some reason. A bright colored material can be added to the wing casing to add visibility, but this fly is pretty hard to miss as it floats high in the water.
